3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. An aggressive pour roused a large, frothy & slowly fading white head leaving a scattered soapy lacing atop a clear, lightly effervescent golden orange body. Strong English hop backbone to an otherwise floral-dominated aroma supplemented by toasty, biscuit tones & some pasteurised malt & butter. Nicely fruity & aromatic on the palate, slight spice, nice biscuit & toasted malt notes. Finished on a fairly bitter note with medium length. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Iím not often sure about Badger offerings but was an OK drop to my tastes. If this wasnít pasteurised I could imagine it being pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lovely golden orange colour with a white head than softens and clings to the side of the glass. Perfumy and floral. Like aromatic grasses with apricot skins and other fruits. Itís soft and juicy in the mouth. Good persistent mouthfeel with flavours of spicy orange zest. It lacks body, but for that a lovely refreshing pint.

Really enjoyable beer. Strong, floral hoppy aroma. Strongly hopped body, more like an IPA than a bitter, with a dry bitter finish. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear mid-golden colour, with a medium white head, which lasts fairly well, leaving a decent film of lace. Floral aromas abound on the nose courtesy of the Goldings, along with some sweetish lemon zest and some light biscuity malt. There is a strong citrus hop presence to start, with lemon juice and peel notes, as well as some mild floral hints. The hops develop even further into an IPA-esque grapefruit flavour. There is some mild biscuit and grainy malt in the body, with a dry and refreshing hoppy finish. This is very strongly hopped for a bitter, yet using English aromatic varieties, so it does maintain the character of a bitter. An original, highly refreshing and eminently drinkable ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a small semi-lasting fizzy white head. Aroma is grassy and citrusy and unfortunately a bit skunky, damn clear bottles, but it soon passes. Pleasant hoppy flavour, resiny , citrusy and grassy with a nice bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. A hoppy beer can be hard to find out here and I quite enjoyed it.
